Call of Duty: Mobile has finally got the Grind mode as part of its recent Season 13 update. If you’re looking to come out on top during this multiplayer mode, then you should keep a few useful tips in mind.
Grind was a unique game mode that was first introduced in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It was initially only available through custom games, but its popularity led to it eventually becoming a true multiplayer mode when Modern Warfare was released in 2019.
Now, Activision has brought it to CoD Mobile as part of the Season 13 update, and it involves you collecting tags dropped by every enemy upon death. Your goal will be to bring these tags back to your team’s objective marker on the map.
This isn’t going to be a cakewalk, so here are a few useful tips to keep in mind to dominate the Grind game mode in Call of Duty: Mobile.
Mind your positioning in CoD Mobile’s Grind
If you want to collect enemy tags, you will need to control the center of the map. This is because it will increase your chances of surviving the journey back to your team’s base since it’s less risky than running from further away.

Don’t focus on aggressively pushing your way through enemy ranks, as this mode isn’t ideal for that. You’ll find yourself in a world of hurt if you stick to this type of planning, so be careful as you make your way forward.
That said, you can still be aggressive in your efforts to keep the enemy team from banking. You can put aside the objective of collecting tags, and instead focus on taking out foes while you’re positioned close to their base.
Hopefully, you’ll have a teammate or two that will focus on picking up tags from the enemies you bring down. Your focus will be on slowing them down in their efforts to rack up points.
Less is more in CoD Mobile’s Grind
As we mentioned earlier, you shouldn’t focus on playing aggressively in Grind. While you might be tempted to gun-down foes left and right while collecting as many tags as you can, this isn’t guaranteed to work out well for you.
If the enemy can eliminate you near their base while you have a large collection of tags on you, then your efforts will go to waste. They’ll have no issue taking back what you stole from them and you’ll end up helping them.
For this reason, less is often more in this game mode. You should focus on collecting a few tags and then making several round trips to your objective marker.
Stick with SMGs
Your weapon loadout choice will determine your chances of success in Grind. If you’re up for rushing into close combat, then you can’t do better than SMGs. They offer better mobility and speed than Assault Rifles.
This makes them the ideal choice for this game mode. You’ll be spending the majority of your time running and gunning in this mode, so it makes sense to choose a weapon that you can fire from the hip. You can do well with the AGR 556 after equipping a few attachments.
While Assault Rifles often dominate battle royales, they don’t offer the assurance that SMGs do during hectic close-range combat situations. You can have the AR users in your team hang back and provide cover fire.
In the end, the class you pick will be the key to your imminent victory. Just keep these tips in mind and you’ll be able to annihilate your foes in CoD Mobile’s Grind mode.

Best guns in CoD Mobile: Every Season 6 weapon ranked
CoD: Mobile has a ton of weapons to choose from and we’ve ranked them all from best to worst and counted the top 5.
Since launching in 2019, CoD Mobile has taken handheld gaming by storm and 2022’s Season 6 has only given players more content to enjoy. The game boasts many fearsome weapons, so we’ve ranked the guns from best to worst.
Since its reboot, Call of Duty: Mobile has come a long way, with the game now absolutely full of content. The Season 6: To the Skies update has added Modern Warfare 2’s beloved Favela map and of course, even more guns.
CoD Mobile has over 70 guns to use from previous CoD games, and we’ve gone through them all to try and decide which are perhaps not as proficient in the art of killing, and which simply rule the game.
Best guns in CoD Mobile ranked list
We’re going to take a moment to assign each of CoD Mobile’s guns an official ranked place before we place them in order. There’s a lot to get through, let’s see where we ranked them all.
Here is every primary CoD Mobile Season 6 gun ranked:
- Kilo 141
- Holger 26
- DL Q33
- Type 25
- KSP 45
- AS VAL
- PP19 Bizon
- MK2 Carbine
- CR-56 AMAX
- Peacekeeper MK2
- Rytec AMR
- SP-R 208
- AGR 556
- Kilo Bolt-Action
- HG 40
- M21 EBR
5 best guns in CoD Mobile
5. SKS – Best Marksman Rifle in CoD Mobile
Somewhat of a ‘skill cannon,’ what makes the SKS so powerful is its ability to two-shot to the chest and one-shot to the head.
- Read more: Best L-CAR 9 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6
If you’re accurate enough, the SKS can be absolutely devastating. You’ll be able to fly around the map taking down enemies in only 200ms, and there aren’t many weapons can that can challenge that TTK.
4. DR-H 4
The DR-H was always a powerful weapon but received major buffs in CoD Mobile Season 6.
- Read more: Best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6
With its new and improved damage profile, the DR-H is now capable of consistently killing enemies in only three shots. This gives it a fantastic TTK, allowing it to challenge the game’s best Assault Rifles.
The only thing holding it back against the Kilo 141 is its recoil, but if you land your shots, you’ll find it’s even better.
The MAC-10 has almost everything you need in a CoD Mobile SMG where it absolutely melts at close-range with a great strafe speed to boot. It doesn’t have the same range potential as the CBR4, but there are few weapons that can challenge it at close-range. Bring the MAC-10 to any small map and you’ll be an unstoppable force.
2. Kilo 141 – Best Assault Rifle in CoD Mobile
The Kilo’s power comes from its accuracy, where you can take on targets at any range with ease. It’s not the fastest killing weapon in CoD Mobile, but players of any skill level can be incredibly accurate with it, no matter the map or mode.
1. CBR4 – Best SMG in CoD: Mobile
If you’re looking for the best gun possible in CoD Mobile Season 6, you can’t go wrong with Season 11’s CBR4. This fast-firing SMG will tear through any enemy you come across, and it’s a favorite in competitive play.
It can be built almost any way you choose, but it’s best suited for smaller range maps such as Shoot House and Hijacked. It may see a nerf soon, so make sure to use it as much as possible in Season 6.

Best L-CAR 9 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6
Black Ops 3’s L-CAR 9 pistol has arrived in CoD Mobile Season 6, so here’s everything you need to create the best L-CAR 9 loadout.
CoD Mobile Season 6: To the Skies is here, bringing the fan-favorite Favela map and new weapons to unlock and master. Black Ops 3’s powerful L-CAR 9 pistol is one of these new weapons, so here’s the best L-CAR 9 loadout and how to unlock it.
Call of Duty: Mobile has an absolutely massive arsenal of weapons, most of them coming from previous CoD games. More are added with each seasonal update, such as Modern Warfare’s Oden and Cold War’s MAC-10.
Even more have arrived in Season 6: To the Skies, with Cold War’s KSP 45 and Black Ops 3’s L-CAR 9. This fully-automatic pistol is already shaping up to be one of the best secondaries in the game, so here’s everything you need to create the best L-CAR 9 loadout in CoD Mobile, and how to unlock it in Season 6.

Best CoD Mobile L-CAR 9 loadout attachments
- Barrel: OWC Ranger
- Stock: Agile Stock
- Laser: 5mW Combat Laser
- Ammunition: Fast Extended Mag A
- Rear Grip: Rustle Grip Tape
The L-CAR 9 isn’t a primary weapon you’ll be running around with constantly, but this CoD Mobile pocket SMG will simply melt enemies at close-range. We’ve built our L-CAR 9 loadout to perfectly complement your primary weapon.
First, we’re kicking off this L-CAR 9 loadout with the OWC Ranger barrel which improves its accuracy, recoil control, and range, making it much more versatile. Next, because you’ll be switching to the L-CAR in a pinch, the 5mW Combat Laser gives it excellent hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to get that quickdraw kill almost instantly.
While the Agile Stock will hurt your hip-fire accuracy slightly, it’s worth using for its incredible sprint-to-fire delay reduction, meaning you’re free to sprint around while carrying the L-CAR 9.
Because this pistol is fully automatic, you’ll want the Fast Extended Mag A to stop it from burning through ammo too quickly. And finally, just in case you need to aim down sight, it’s worth adding the Rustle Grip Tape for faster ADS speed.
Best CoD Mobile L-CAR 9 Perks
- Red Perk: Fast Recover
- Green Perk: Amped
- Blue Perk: Hardline
Fast Recover is a fantastic Perk to use with any CoD Mobile class because you’ll start regenerating health immediately after getting a kill or capturing an objective.
Since you’ll want to get the most out of your L-CAR 9, Amped will allow you to quickly swap between weapons. And finally, Hardline is a great all-rounder because you’ll be earning Scorestreaks much faster.
How to unlock L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile
While the KSP 45 is unlocked through the Season 6 Battle Pass, the L-CAR 9 is unlocked through the Too Close For Comfort challenges.

Here’s everything you need to do to unlock the L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile:
- Play 5 MP Matches
- Fire 300 Rounds in MP Matches
- Use Operator Skills 10 times in MP Matches
- Use the Purifier Operator Skill 5 times in MP Matches
- Kill 5 Enemies with any Pistol in MP Matches
There are a couple more challenges to compete after unlocking the L-CAR 9, but you only need to do these first five to permanently unlock the weapon.
Best L-CAR 9 alternatives in CoD Mobile
There are plenty of powerful secondary weapons you could use instead of the L-CAR 9 in CoD Mobile, with the Renetti capable of one-bursting enemies. Or, you can use the .50 GS to one-shot headshot your foes.

Best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6
CoD Mobile Season 6 sees the KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War arrive in the game, here’s our best loadout for the burst SMG.
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 6 arrived and it’s bringing the KSP 45 from Black Ops Cold War into the mix. Here’s how to make the most of the powerful burst SMG with our best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile.
CoD Mobile loves to take classic weapons and maps from the mainline titles and allow players to enjoy them on the go, and the trend seems to be continuing once again.
Before you head out there and try out the new toy, you’re going to need to know the optimal build. Here’s our best KSP 45 loadout for CoD Mobile Season 6.

Best COD Mobile KSP 45 attachments
- Barrel: 10.5″ Task Force Barrel
- Stock: Light Weight Stock
- Underbarrel: Striker Foregrip
- Ammunition: Extended Mag A
- Rear Grip: Rustle Grip Tape
Due to the fact that the KSP 45 is a burst fire SMG, the weapon has surprisingly little recoil, meaning we can focus our loadout on other areas like movement. We kick things off with the 10.5″ Task Force Barrel for a sizeable boost in both range and bullet speed, helping the KSP hold its own at longer distances.
Next, we’ve gone for the Light Weight Stock, Striker Foregrip, and Rustle Grip Tape. These offer buffs to movement speed, both while running and aiming, and ADS speed, allowing for a more aggressive style of play where you really get into enemies’ faces.
Finally, we chose Extended Mag A for an increase in ammo, so you don’t have to worry about running dry and reloading in a crucial gunfight.
Best Perks for CoD Mobile KSP 45 loadout
- Red Perk: Lightweight
- Green Perk: Vulture
- Blue Perk: Dead Silence
Our KSP 45 loadout has revolved around movement, and we think it’s best to double down once again with Lightweight, letting you tear across the map and push the opposing team.
- Read more: Best Oden loadout in CoD Mobile
Even with its three-round burst, it’s easy to burn through ammo quickly which can lead to a quick death. By using Vulture, you can pick up more bullets after each kill, so you can rack up a lengthy killstreak without constantly checking your reserves.
Lastly, since this weapon thrives in close-quarters combat, we recommend Dead Silence to allow you to sneak up on enemies with silent movement.
How to unlock KSP 45 in CoD Mobile
The KSP 45 is unlocked by reaching Tier 21 of the CoD Mobile Season 6 Battle Pass, which also happens to be one of the free tiers. This means you can try out the Cold War SMG without having to splash any cash if you don’t want to.
- Read more: CoD: Mobile Tournament Mode explained
If you haven’t reached Tier 21 by the time Season 6 draws to a close, don’t worry. When Season 7 kicks off you’ll still be to unlock the KSP 45 through an in-game challenge.
Best alternative to KSP 45 in CoD Mobile
The biggest drawback of the KSP 45 is the burst fire rate, which won’t suit everyone’s playstyle. If this is the case for you, then try the MAC-10 introduced back in Season 3.
While it’s far less accurate than the KSP 45, its ridiculous speed of fire makes it a beast at close-range.
